U of T takes on Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s University Challenge

Wednesday, August 11, 2010 - 9:59am

U of T pride will be on the line Oct. 3 as the university hosts the annual Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure for the first time on its St. George and Mississauga campuses.

The five-kilometre run and one-kilometre walk raise funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, an organization which sponsors numerous U of T breast cancer research projects. The foundation hopes the campus location will increase university participation and has issued a challenge to universities across Ontario to see who can raise the most money for breast cancer research. Faculty, staff, students and alumni taking part in either the Toronto run or the Mississauga run are eligible.
